Vegan Keto Ice Cream Recipe (Chocolate Sorbet) Recipe
By Peanut Palate
🔪Prep Time: 15 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 15 mins
2¼ cups water
1 cup coconut sugar
¾ cup cocoa powder dutch-processed if possible
½ cup vegan dark chocolate chips For a sweeter ice cream, use semisweet chocolate and add half the amount of maple syrup to start. Then increase the maple syrup as desired after
½ tsp vanilla extract or a freshly scraped vanilla bean
¼ cup pure maple syrup
8 tsp cornstarch
1In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk together 1.5 cups of water, cocoa powder, sugar and salt. Let it boil while constantly stirring. Once boiling, whisk for 30 seconds and turn off.
2Remove from heat and stir in the dark (or semisweet) chocolate. Then whisk in the vanilla and the remaining water, maple syrup and cornstarch. Make sure there are no clumps. If you used semisweet chocolate instead of dark, start with half the amount of maple syrup, and add more as desired at the end – otherwise, it may end up being too sweet.
3Put the ice cream mixture into the fridge to chill for 6 hours. Make sure you also have your ice cream machine in the freezer.
4Note that if you don't have an ice cream maker, the sorbet won't come out perfect. However, you can freeze the mixture into ice cube trays and blend it in a food processor once frozen, until the final result is like a soft serve ice cream consistency. A food processor is preferred as a substitute due to the wide base, as compared to a blender.
5Once the mixture is cooled, remove it from the fridge and whisk it around. Then add it to the ice cream maker, churning as per the manufacturer's instructions. After about 15 minutes of churning, the sorbet should be done.
6Remove from the ice cream maker and serve immediately.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
